chocolate, some essence, raspberries and a bit of sugar and some orange juice. Herbie thinks that his niece, Petey, would follow me home and just stay here if I shared some of this with her. I laughed and told him what Craig had told me years ago - I could be his cook once he was rich and famous. He is rich and famous, but I cook here on the farm. Hey, Craig, come and eat here with us ! Think I must take after my paternal grandmother, Granny Shaw.
And my kitchen is tidy, including the counter between the kitchen and dining room which is always a dumping ground for everything. And for those that have known me for years and years, THE FLOOR IS CLEAN TOO. Slowly but surely I'm getting everything like I like it (and how Herbie likes it). Really just the study upstairs now, all that paperwork. Then the garage, and the basement. Maybe even the shed, but that will probably drive Herbie crazy if I put everything in place - or what I think is in place which he'll probably not agree with. Can't wait to find some misplaced stuff - my yellow scissors that are supposed to live on the fridge, my long loppers. Think the other found stuff will just be a surprise. I've been chucking stuff out too. I have soooo much stuff !
Moved the sheep back to the front enclosure. Anni 'helped', chased one of this years' lambs right around the enclosure. Need to spend more time with her on her helping. Rosco is a little discombobulated still with Anni being in the garage most of the time. Haven't seen him venture anywhere near the door. Think Anni will take his head off if he gets anywhere near her puppies. Now the ducks and geese can reclaim the back of the chicken yard. Just seen them all out on the back lawn, so opened a window, clapped my hands and said 'bed' and they all went in the gate. Such good birds. Wonder how long it is before they venture out again.
Sort of planned to have a "me" day today, nails, waxing, dyeing eyelashes and brows, maybe a facial, a foot spa, the various primping and preening, but it never worked out that way. Maybe next week.
Didn't see the Mosleys' today when they came for their milk. Dropped of 5 dozen eggs, as well as Big Reds' head. Attached it to a post below the lower barn. Think I'm going to have to move it higher out back as Rosco is fairly interested in it in it's current position, plus Daisy May goes back to that side of the lower barn enclosure and I don't like the cows seeing their dead previous pasture mates.
